Forum: etree Subject: Burning WAV Audio to a DVD-R

Hey-
My wife has been nagging me about eating up the hard drive with music files so instead of burning CD-Rs of all of them I thought why not burn em to a DVD-R and then tranfer the ones a really want to CD-R. I attempted to do this using NERO and haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any info on this? Also, once I have delated the files from my hard drive they are all gone? right? And all previous space is restored?
Thanks
stella

Are you looking to listen to the DVD-R on a CD player or DVD player, or just archive the music there?

As for deleting, yes, once deleted from the hard drive, the space frees back up.

From day one on the Archive I began burning all shows onto DVD-R's with one show per disc, including flacs/shns, .wavs, 320kbs .mp3's, and any other available data (photos, text, etc.)

DVD-R's generally cost about $ .08/GB whereas a decent HD about $ .50/GB and without 'portable access'. DVD-R storage also prevents the 'eggs in one basket' dangers of HD instability. If a DVD-R is corrupted you lose a show. If a HD goes you lose it all.

For listening I simply keep all of the .mp3's on the HD or I stream. For copying for others I break out the DVD-R and use the source .wav files.

The DVD-R process takes a long time but has worked for me and enabled me to get close to a TB of Dead, excluding my TB of HD space with shows yet to be burned on DVD-R. I also believe it nicely unchains you from a single computer with all of your music.

Nero is good for this, just make sure you are using compatible media with your burner.....and, obviously, you can only read them in a similarly compatible drive. Not to plug anyone, but the best deals I have found for quality DVD-R blanks is supermediastore.com. They always have sales and discounts going and you can get volume discounts. I just got a bulk of 8X DVD+-R at about $.30/each.

I save the shns/flacs as a data file on my DVD. I can listen to them on my computer without converting them and then temporarily convert them to wave/mp3 for burning to cd for portable listening.

Another take on this is to buy an external hard drive. I bought a 100G external drive and save all my GD files to it. So far I have about 150 shows and it has taken up about 12G of this drive. I find it to be very convenient because all my music is right there for listening, burning or uploading.
